    Mines overgrown with weeds. I missed the first grow and will have to till it soon for the second grow. I'm going to do just korean vegetables this year.

    That's what happened to mine last year. I try to weed this at least once a week. It's small, but it'll do.

    I have 2000 square feet. Last year Oma did it. This year the wife and I are too busy. After I finish my bathrooms, I will work on it. I need to get a pallet of black cow. My soil isn't very fertile. Sesame leaf grows like crazy though.

    My first garden box is overflowing. Just started planting in the second one. Never done raised beds before, but my property floods easily so...
    Here is a picture of the backside, my cucumber decided to take over.

    I used to have pretty nice brick garden boxes at the old house. I might be able to find a picture on an old computer.

    We moved and now live in the middle of deer/rabbit/etc. paradise. According to the previous owners of the house, there's no reason to try to plant anything- it will just be eaten. So far this year, I had a butterfly bush in a pot near the driveway- it's struggling to come back after being bitten off.

    So far the "gutter garden" is holding up OK-

    Picked some red and orange cherry tomatoes, and a jalapeno couple days ago.
    Not a big amount but a good start, and earliest I can remember
